The yoghurt used in this recipe was kindly sent to me by Chobani UK. The yoghurt is 100 % fat free and made from skimmed milk.It was rich and delicious.I have previously tried Chobani yoghurts and cooked with them.You can check out the recipes for Yoghurt and coconut chutney and  Sweetcorn drop pancakes that I previously made with Chobani Yoghurts.

  1. My in-laws eat a similar salted yoghurt drink in North Cyprus which is the Turkish side. I don't think it has the spices though. They would really improve the flavour.

  5. I may have to give this a try. I like all of those flavors as an accompaniment to Indian food, but I'm not sure how I would feel about drinking them. Thanks for linking up at Pin It Tuesday.

  7. I've never had Lassi. It would go well with a curry as yogurt does in general.

  9. This looks great, it's definitely different to my usual summery drink. I think the juice of the lemon would give it the kick it needs to take away from the milkyness of it. xx
